    It was programmed by NY cabbies. It cannot go through an empty intersection.

    In real-life test runs, one of the early problems with autonomous vehicles occurred if there were 2 of them in just this configuration, each one waiting for the other to go first. They’d programmed in too much politeness.

    When I first heard about the problem, I wondered why they didn’t go with the rule I’d learned in driver’s ed: Vehicle on the right has right of way. But then how would it work if 4 cars approached the same intersection simultaneously? Rock, paper, scissors?

    there seem to be a LOT of articles lately about “self-driving” vehicles. The conclusion always seems to be they’re nowhere near ready for general use. . .
